What's old is new again!
It might be 2016, but it feels like 1996 when it comes to the hottest fashion trends.
With everything from chokers to slip dresses to velvet clothing making a comeback, it comes as no surprise that our anchors found inspiration for this year's Halloween costumes in one of the most fun decades of all time: the '90s.
From Britney Spears to Regis Philbin and even the Spice Girls, our TODAY anchors and friends certainly got into the '90s Halloween spirit. With Matt Lauer as Jerry Senfield, Al Roker as "Family Matters" own Steve Urkel, Savannah Guthrie as Demi Moore's iconic Vanity Fair cover, Dylan Dryer as Baby Spice, Tamron Hall as Julia Roberts in "Pretty Woman" and Jenna Bush Hager as none other than her grandmother, Barbara Bush, there were lots of throwbacks on the Plaza.
And to help you revive your favorite nostalgic trends, we've rounded up some of must-have items that are suddenly popular again. Whether you want to throw it back to the '90s for your own Halloween costume this year or just be trendy in your everyday life, take a look below and shop your favorites.
And if you've always wanted to relive the days of the Spice Girls (like Dylan and her Baby Spice costume), now's your chance: The pop group's signature platform boots are right on trend for fall. You can even channel your inner rock star with boots that have actual stars on them.
